Romantic ideas for a date include going to a local event, spending the day at the aquarium or going to brunch during the weekend. A simple, inexpensive date such as going to a nearby lake can also be very romantic.
The setting of the date is only the beginning; just about any type of date can be made romantic. When going to the lake, feed the ducks together and set up a romantic picnic with a blanket, wine and cheese. For a brunch date, pick a spot that has intimate, private tables with candles and a pretty display.
The local aquarium is a fun place to go at any age. It features different types of sea animals and sea creatures, and the illumination of the aquarium gives a unique setting for the entire date. This is great for a first date or when a couple wants to enjoy a summer weekend.
Another fun idea that can also be romantic is taking dance or cooking lessons together. This can be done over a series of weeks in which the couple learns a slow or sultry dance together, or learns to cook something together, then makes a meal for one another at home. Local events, such as carnivals and cornfield mazes, also become instantly romantic. At the carnival, go for a quiet ride on the Ferris wheel and walk hand-in-hand through the maze.
